Why Golf Club Fitting Matters

Contributed by Patriot Golf USA

I’m a New Golfer. Should I Get Custom Fit for Golf Clubs?
Once you build a basic reliable swing with your instructor, it’s a good idea to get fit for at least a few golf clubs. Most golfers don’t realize that up to 50% of errant shots can be due to equipment that’s just not right for you. That can be very frustrating for new players.

How Often Should I Get New Equipment?
We recommend a fitting every two years. Technology’s constant evolution may offer significant game improvement with a portion of your bag. The right way to explore new equipment is with a fitter, on a simulator to analyze your ball flight.

Should I take Golf Lessons Before a Club Fitting?
We offer lessons but it is not necessary prior to a club fitting. Our custom fitting process is ‘developmental.’ That means we don’t fit to swing flaws. We recommend equipment combinations that help you evolve toward the swing goals.

Won’t an Indoor Club Fitting be Less Productive than Outdoors?
There are definitely aspects of hitting balls outdoors that are closer to playing conditions than indoors. However, we love indoor fittings because it removes wind and weather from the equation for a few hours. This allows you to contrast and compare equipment combinations in a vacuum for maximum confidence in your results.

Will My Golf Clubs be Built at Your Location?
Yes, indeed. Your new golf clubs are built to your exact specifications right here on site. It’s the only way to guarantee complete success for you. And, when you pick up your clubs you’ll have the opportunity to hit each one to make sure the new fit and feel is right on the money.

When is a “Shaft Only” Fitting Right for Me?
Some golfers have recently purchased new equipment. In most cases, errant shots or lack of distance are due to the shaft NOT being the correct profile for the player. Our shaft fitting process will discover your optimum shaft profile and allow you to retro-fit to your existing heads.
